EIC #97

Hello, friends:}
It's my second post as an official EtsyInspired Challenge DT member!! So exciting:} This week we headed over to the Etsy store::: Mermaid's Tears Jewelry!! All the jewelry is made from sea glass [a.k.a. Mermaid's Tears]. I was inspired by several pieces--but two really caught my eye.


I really like this turtle necklace. I couldn't help but use my Unity turtle {from the Naturally You stamp set}! It matches perfectly! I also couldn't help but make a cute prayer book/journal! These books are super easy to make--and the contents are the most important!! I paper pieced the turtle and popped the four squares with foam--easy!!


My next inspiration piece was this purple/lilac necklace. BEAUTIFUL! I just found out last night that my best friend's grandpa passed away. I wanted to send her a simple yet beautiful sympathy card. I made this one using purple as my base (popped) color. The butterfly is from Unity's Butterfly Garden set. The sentiment is from Unity's Bevy of Butterflies. And the wreath is also Unity--July KOTM. I wasn't sure what the wreath actually had as berries--I colored mine with a dark purple gelly roll pen. I really like it! **NOTE:: I really wanted the berries to turn out lilac--but the gelly roll is really dark. I still think it is beautiful! Eh!
That's it for me today--but you really need to stop by the other EIC DT members' blogs!! WOW--these gals are creative:}

I love both these cards, I always like to see what you come up with! The turtle is so cute and fun, and I love that scripture too! You did a great job designing the second card with the stamp and butterfly after the second inspiration! LOVELY!

What is the little spikey card holder that your card is displayed on? I've been looking for those? Where'dya find it? Gotta get me one
